At Glisson, we specialize in hosting retreat experiences that facilitate transformation, growth, and renewal. Our facilities can accommodate a wide variety of retreat groups. See which buildings and dining plans work best for you!
Our new Dining Hall provides family-style dining with a state-of-the-art kitchen. It also features a gathering lobby with fireplace and a front porch with fire ring. Also in this building are the Creekview Meeting Room, coffee lounge, camp store, and Prayer Chapel.
The cost of staying in the Village Cabins or Sparrowwood Lodge includes meals in our Dining Hall. Groups staying at Ivie Lodge have the option of preparing their own meals or use the Dining Hall.
Village cabins offer single-gender, dormitory-style lodging. Each heated cabin sleeps 15 people and offers comfortable, modern bath amenities.
Interiors include wooden plank floors and ceilings. Wall-mounted light fixtures mimic the hand-held lanterns gold miners used to illuminate their dark mine shafts. Each cabin has a screened porch as well.
Ivie Lodge offers dormitory-style, air-conditioned accommodations. Each room has bunks for seven people and its own bathroom (two showers, sinks, and toilets). A separate, private leader room is available. Ivie also has its own small field and separate parking lot.
The Lodge includes a large gathering room (with fireplace), two smaller gathering rooms, a catering kitchen and a large rocking chair porch overlooking Cane Creek.
Sparrowwood Lodge offers air-conditioned, dormitory-style accommodations, meeting space, a catering kitchen, and a large rocking chair porch overlooking beautiful Cane Creek. Each sleeping room contains bunk beds for four people and connects to another sleeping room via a bathroom.
During the summer, this lodge is home to our Sparrowwood campers — children, youth and adults with mild to moderate developmental disabilities.
Lanford Leadership Lodge
The Lodge is essentially two Village cabins attached by a covered hallway, and it can sleep 14 people in each side. Each side has its own bathroom with two sinks, two showers, and two toilets. It also has a large screen porch.
Outpost Campsite &
Group Adventure Retreats
Enjoy a wilderness camping experience at our Outpost campsite. We offer single-gender sleeping arrangements in Adirondack shelters or platform tents. The four Adirondack shelters will sleep 14 people each, and the covered Dining Pavilion can hold 50+ people.
You can cook meals over a fire-heated cooktop/grill, worship in our open-air chapel, and bathe in our bathhouses with spring-fed, cold-water showers.
